Bali, the Island of Gods


Bali, the famed Island of Gods, is a serious contender as one of the few paradise left on earth. With its picturesque and varied landscape – from rolling hills, towering cliffs and sandy white beaches, it is no wonder why some 3 million tourists make their way yearly towards this small island paradise.

But experiencing Bali is not all about sandy white beaches or clear blue waters. Nor is it just another surfers’ paradise or an ideal getaway vacation spot. Underneath all the raves and attention rendered to its beautiful beaches, tourist bars and island tours, lies raw, genuine cultural charm that makes Bali a truly charming place.

Venture deeper beyond the coastline into the hilly landscapes of Ubud – lush rainforests, rapid rivers and volcanic mountains, and get closer to nature. Its varied facade has made available a myriad of adventures such as water rafting down its wild rivers, mountain climbing to catch the hues of lingering sunrise and even a quiet trek into the rainforest to get away from the crowds and bustles.

Once the tranquility (or adrenaline rush) of the wild is done and over with, you can’t miss out on joining the rest of the pack at the beach with world-class surfing and diving spots, a wide range of dining choices from luxurious bistro to roadside local food and, not to mention, the small, but highly rewarding shopping trails. You can choose to party the night away at the epicurean Kuta and Seminyak, or head towards Jimbaran for a night of seafood and luxury.

Wherever you are from, you can never experience anywhere else quite the same. Bali is an exotic world of its own mystical charms that linger long even after you leave. Like a magical spell, the unique and indulging Bali experience keeps people coming back for more.

  4. rossi on Tue, 6th Nov 2012 3:08 pm This was such a great activity. We were collected and driven to breakfast with a stunning view of the volcanoes and lake. Then off we went for our ride (wear sunscreen!!!). The locations we rode through and villages we saw were beautiful. I hadn’t been on a bike for about 20 years but it was easy enough and the guides were so helpful. We were able to take it at our own pace and the ride finished with a delicious lunch over looking beautiful rice fields. The whole team involved with Bali Hai were so friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this tour for anybody who is keen for a pleasant ride in a beautiful area of Bali.
